    I lowered my main keyword density. It's different for everyone. Test and See what works for you!

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-smushit/

    Also, I compress images on tinypng.com before uploading.

    Basic droplet. $5 per month. I've setup Lightspeed WordPress server which is more faster than normal WordPress.

    Install this app from the Digitalocean marketplace - https://marketplace.digitalocean.com/apps/openlitespeed-wordpress

    $5 per month basic droplet.

    It is definitely the most important aspect in SEO.

    It's just my thoughts that Speed is second most important thing after Links. I just followed the the guide and it worked for me. I am going to test this on other sites and post an update here.

    Well done godknowseverything,
    Definitely onpage should be #1 priority.
    In regards to speeds, this is another reason why we don't recommend going cheap with your host.

    Cool tips, thanks for the share.

    As other say, imo keywords density & interlinks were the problems.
    Page speed is the icing on the cake !

    OpenLiteSpeed WordPress, is this any faster than using nginx? Have you done any testing for speed?

    Nice post and well done, I have taken on clients whose previous agency/freelancer had put them on shared hosting and ignored their onsite and they'd suffered substantial losses in traffic and leads. Moving them to dedicated hosting and concentrating on load speed and onsite internal linking greatly assisted, however, I can't agree that you can rank without links and they don't matter - they are still one of the key ranking factors.

    It's an accident. An exception to the rules.

    I'd say 80% of what SEO folks are talking about these days is site speed, being mobile friendly and on-page/hq contet.

    So many generic comments.

    Anyway good thread!
